FGS £4074.00 to Chigwell Riding Trust

Fitgirlslim members spent last  year burning calories and raising cash in aid of the world’s oldest riding centre for people with special needs, the Chigwell Riding Trust.

Members threw themselves into a variety of challenges including a 30 Day chocolate free ‘dechox’, a seven day slim down, A quiz Night, a Halloween fancy dress party and a dance masterclass with Strictly Come Dancing’s Ian Waite.

A cheque for £4,000 was handed to the Grange Farm Lane centre’s owner Deborah Hall MBE, who helps 160 riders saddle up each week.

Ms Hall said: “ This is a very generous donation. I really can’t thank Fitgirlslim members enough, the money will be put to very good use and as a consequence will help change children’s lives for the better.”

Since adopting the Chigwell Riding Trust as our chosen charity for 2017, some of our class members are not only supporting our fundraising efforts but also now regularly volunteering at the riding trust.
